A congressional meeting room located on Capitol Hill will soon be memorialized in honor of the first congressional aide killed in the line of duty.
Gabe Zimmerman served as chief of staff for Rep. Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz.
Zimmerman along with five others were killed when gunman Jared Lee Loughner allegedly opened fire at a meet and greet event Giffords was hosting in Tuscon.
The effort to name the room in Zimmerman's honor has support from both Democrats and Republicans.
House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, spoke in favor of naming the room after Giffords' aide.
"An attack on one who serves is an attack on all who serve. I don't think I fully understood the meaning of those words until last January's senseless assault," Boehner said.
